And specifically, to each and everyone using a passport that is not eligible for VoA, please send an email to vi…@ioi2022.id immediately/now to get our visa application assistance, you will then need to accurately fill this form: bit.ly/IOI2022VISA, latest by Friday 15 July. Note that you are responsible for your own visa costs, the same applies to those who do VoA. To those participating online, please ignore these entirely.
>> Room & Food Preference
To each and everyone planning to come onsite, please let us know should you have any particular/critical room and/or food preference by Friday 15 July. Unless of different gender or requested otherwise, TLs and DLs (from the same team) are going to share a twin room, and students (from the same team) are going to share twin rooms. By default, we will serve halal food. Appreciate if you can keep your preference as short/simple as possible. Also, appreciate your understanding that we might have constraints while we try our best to accommodate.
>> Matrix Account & Practice Session
It is necessary/mandatory for all TLs + DLs + Adjuncts (who translate/proctor) + Guests (who translate) to be correctly registered to our IOI 2022 Matrix server. Please verify that you (firstly, at least TLs/DLs) are able to log in to our Matrix homeserver (https://app.element.io, change Homeserver to https://matrix.ioi2022.id) with the exact username that you entered in the registration system. If you have any confusion/difficulty (some unfortunately still do), please let us know immediately/now. Next week, we will distribute test accounts for practice sessions only via Matrix, so please do take some time to do the above verification.
